The server, a snotty young "man" with a delicate silver hoop in his nose, seemed like he was actually trying to be unpleasant. And not the first time that I have had strange, rude servers there--so I suppose it's a quality the management looks for in their staff.The coffee may be good but the horrid service was definitely not worth the terrible after taste. Walked away with friends wondering what the heck that poor attitude was all about. Almost wished I hadn't put a tip into the ironically named "For Good Karma" tip jar. Local for 25 years and will not be returning or recommending the place. Namaste.

This cafe has an outdoor seating that is very pleasant, but you need to stay in line to purchase your food. I ordered an omelette on bagels and they made two times a mistake on the order. I think the eggs were delivered in bottles and bacon and turkey were old. The bagels were hard to cut as if they were made of plastic. I could not cut them with the plastic cutlery provided. It cost me almost 7 dollars for omelet inside a bagel and I found it overpriced. If you look for grilled chicken, it is not the place to go. It is all processed and quick prepared stuff that is not very tasty.

What a perfect place for a harbor walk and then to treat yourself to breakfast or lunch at the Coffee Importers. We are long time fans always enjoying their great coffee, bagels and more. Just had lunch today selecting the turkey panini, veggie soup and a tuna sandwich. The panini is good sized, cup of soup more than a cup and the tuna very fresh - you won't go hungry. CI is a little pricey but worth it. A perfect way to enjoy a beautiful cool winter afternoon at this unique So Cal harbor front.

Coffee importers is mostly a breakfast and lunch spot. I am surprised it doesn't have more reviews on here because it is always packed with people. The coffee is excellent, there are three to choose from and they change daily. The breakfast sandwiches and bagels are delicious but they also have healthy options such as power pancakes, oatmeal and yogurt. For lunch there are panninis, baguette sandwiches, and salads. They also have a juice bar.
